I came across innisfree Green Tea Cleansing Water when I was in Shanghai September 2016. I contemplated whether to buy it or not but ended up not buying it as I wasn’t sure how much weigh limit do I still have with my luggage at the time. When I was skincare shopping at the duty free shop of Singapore Changi Airport, I found out that they are having this promotion whereby you get extra discounts off for K-beauty products with minimum purchase of two items and above.
I think the promotion is still ongoing as I still get the same promotional discount when I was at Singapore Changi Airport earlier this month. I guess this promotion would last quite long but it doesn’t apply for online shopping at iSHOPCHANGI. You have to be physically there to enjoy such benefit. Without further ado, let’s get started with our skincare review for today!
innisfree Green Tea Cleansing Water
I’m not sure if you guys remember. I went through a phase whereby I had been totally obsessive towards cleansing water to the extent that I still have four to five cleansing waters storing in my skincare drawer as we speak. Reason being, I find them hassle free, effective and convenient to use on lazy days.
The packaging is a sturdy one. What’s so special about this product is the dispenser. Instead of the turning the bottle upside down to release the content before usage, this one comes with a pump dispenser whereby all you need to do is to place the cotton pad on top of the pump and press downward. I press about four to five times per usage to wet the cotton pad.
The fragrance, it is green tea scented with some added artificial fragrance (I think). It didn’t smell quite au naturale to me. I detected some alcohol scent in the cleansing water despite there wasn’t any alcohol listed in the ingredients’ description. I like that this cleansing water ain’t harsh on my skin and it leaves my skin feeling soft and supple after rinsing. It is a habit of mine that I must rinse my face after using cleansing water before following by my facial cleanser at the time.
Performance wise, it lives up to my expectation. It removes my eyebrow pencil, dirt and grimes off my face easily. However, I could not vouch for the effectiveness when it comes to removing heavy makeup. Most importantly, this cleansing water doesn’t give me any skin breakout problem.
So, here’s what I think of innisfree Green Tea Cleansing Water in a nutshell:
1. Removes eyebrow pencil, dirt and grimes off my face very well.
2. Comes with a pump dispenser.
3. Doesn’t cause me any skin breakout problem.
4. Leaving skin feeling soft and supple after usage.
5. Ain’t harsh on my skin.
1. Green tea scented which doesn’t smell quite au naturale to me.
